Fri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

Hosea 4:12-14 King James Version (KJV)
12 My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
13 They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
14 I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with harlots: therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.

Hosea 4:12-14 Expanded Bible (EXB)
God’s Case Against the People

12 “My people ask wooden idols for •advice [counsel];
they ask •those sticks of wood [or divining rods/staffs] to advise them!
•Like prostitutes, they have chased after other gods [L A spirit/wind of prostitution leads/blows them astray]
•and have left [committing adultery against; being unfaithful to] their own God.
13 They make sacrifices on the tops of the mountains [C places of pagan worship].
They burn offerings on the hills,
under oaks, poplars, and •other trees [terebinths],
because their shade is •nice [pleasant].
So your daughters become prostitutes [C cultic prostitutes in pagan temples],
and your daughters-in-law are guilty of adultery.
14 “But I will not punish your daughters
for becoming prostitutes,
nor your daughters-in-law
for their sins of adultery.
I will not punish them,
because the men •have sexual relations [go off] with prostitutes
and offer sacrifices with the •temple [cult; shrine] prostitutes.
A •foolish people [people without knowledge/discernment] will be •ruined [destroyed].

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

12 The scripture here references a whore compared to God is reference to idols. It compares their relationship to God as a marriage which they broke by seeking idols which is referred to as whores. The piece of wood refers to the idols which were often made from wood because it was a cheap long lasting material.

13 Sacrifices were often given on high places and places of comfort. Sacrifices that were given to the Lord were given at the temple but false places of worship were often at hills and mountains, shine prostitution was often a part of pagan worship.

14 They would not see what was happening because they did not have understanding of how things truly were.
